2022-23 Pinewood Derby Days - Individual & Small Group Sessions

Event Details

Fifth Annual Pinewood Derby Days (2022-23)

Open Registration Sessions

Our Open Registration Sessions are a great opportunity for individual Cub Scouts or small groups to work on their cars in our supervised wood shop.

Choose a date and select a check in time.  Check in times are offered every 30 minutes during the scheduled session. Select a time slot for each individual building a car. Cub Scout age siblings may participate and should be registered in their own time slot as a "Cub Scout Youth".

Target Completion Time:  The target completion time is 45 minutes which is adequate for most car designs.  We have a 1 hour work time limit, so please encourage Cub Scouts to avoid highly complex car designs as they may not have sufficient time to complete their work.  Cub Scouts may design their own car in advance or may select a design from a variety of templates we have on hand in the shop.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR DISTRICT'S RULES ABOUT AXLE HOLES BEFORE YOUR SESSION.  Each District has its own rules about redrilling the axle holes -- some Districts permit this SOME DISTRICTS DO NOT.  Due to the number of Districts and annual rule changes, Michael's Woodshop is not able to provide guidance on these rules.  Please do not risk having a car disqualified.  You should only re-drill the axle holes if you have confirmed that your District permits it.

Adults/Parents:  The objective of our work sessions is to provide Cub Scouts with the opportunity to build their Pinewood Derby cars.  As a result, we are respectfully requesting that adults refrain from building cars so that more time can be allocated to the Cub Scouts.  Exception:  Adult novice/first time builders who need assistance may bring their own car kit and build a car alongside their Cub Scout in the same time slot (a separate registration is not required).

Bring yourself, your car kit, AND WEIGHTS.  Please plan to arrive 5 minutes before your start time and to depart promptly upon completion.

Please read the PWD Participant Information page as it contains important information about car weight, shop location (incluidng a camp map) and other information about the session.
